Family members join to create a Review scholarshipA family with numerous links to the College has given $50,000 to the Kenyon Review to fund scholarships for student interns.
Jacqueline H. Dryfoos P'92, a member of the board of theReview, has joined with her son, Michael Greenspon '92, and her daughter-in-law, Jennifer A. Gundlach '93, in a pledge to endow two yearly internships at the journal for eligible students at the College who have participated in the Review's Young Writers workshop before enrolling at Kenyon.
"This is an innovative, indeed wonderfully creative gift that benefits both deserving and talented students and the Kenyon Review," says David H. Lynn '76, editor of the Review and professor of English at the College.
Dryfoos, a psychotherapist, lives in New York City. She has been a trustee of the Kenyon Review since the board's inception in 1996. Greenspon, who is on the staff of the Boston Globe, and Gundlach, an assistant clinical professor of law at Suffolk University, make their home in Newton, Massachusetts.
As part of its commitment to enriching the College's academic environment, the Kenyon Review works throughout the year with a number of students, several of whom are appointed to paid internships. These interns help direct the literary journal's Associates Program, in which twelve to twenty students volunteer for two to three hours per week, gaining hands-on experience in editing, marketing, and publishing. "This is an increasingly important part of the Kenyon Review," says Lynn, "and the interns are essential members of our team." He notes that they, and the associates, are now involved in an innovative program in which they teach writing at Gambier's Wiggin Street School-to future readers of the Review, perhaps.
